Scoop: GO ON on NBC - Tuesday, November 27, 2012"Back, Back, Back...It's Gone!" - When Ryan (Matthew Perry) decides it's time to start dating again, Misty May-Treanor offers to help and invites him to play in a game of beach volleyball with her friends. Elsewhere, George (Bill Cobbs) outlives his doctors' predicted life expectancy for him and is ready to celebrate and Danny (Seth Morris) develops feelings for Sonia (Sarah Baker).Laura Benanti, Tyler James Williams, Julie White, John Cho and Suzy Nakamura also star. Hayes McArthur guest stars. GO ON airs on NBC on Tuesday, November 27 at 9:00pm!

Matthew Perry ("Friends," "Mr. Sunshine") stars as Ryan King, a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan's alpha-male boss, Steven (John Cho, "Star Trek," "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle"), has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air.

A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for "life change" where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss. On his very first visit, Ryan convinces the group to deviate from their normal session and starts a tournament-style competition (March Sadness!) to find out whose story is the worsT. Ryan’s total lack of interest in "the healing process" proves distracting, and he soon butts heads with the by-the-books group leader, Lauren, played by Tony Award-winner Laura Benanti ("The Playboy Club"). Back at work, Ryan is confronted with the fact that he hasn't really processed his grief and realizes Lauren and the other members of the group might be key in helping him move on. Also starring are Tony Award winner Julie White (“Transformers”) as Anne, Tyler James Williams (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Owen, Suzy Nakamura (“Dodgeball”) as Yolanda, and Brett Gelman as Mr.K (“30 Minutes or Less”).

"Go On" is a touching new comedy created by Emmy Award-winning writer/executive producer Scott Silveri (“Perfect Couples,” “Friends”). Three-time Emmy winner Todd Holland (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Karey Nixon (“Free Agents,” “Miss/Guided”) and Jon Pollack (“Up All Night,” “30 Rock”) also serve as executive producers. The pilot was directed by Holland.
